I am Angela Thomas-Waltman, a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP), a Reiki Master and a Certified Advanced Practice Holistic Nurse. I absolutely love what I do. I have been an FNP since 1998, both in Internal Medicine and Family Practice, and most recently back in the Emergency Department. Regardless of the setting, my focus has been Holistic care: Care of the Mind, Body and Spirit.
It has been a long time dream of mine to have a practice right in my community and I am so joyful about the opportunity to do so. I also really enjoy the blending of Western and Eastern Medicine, drawing from the wisdom of many practices.
My passion is to bring a realistic, “doable,” Mindfulness/Meditation-Stress Reduction to people…even simple, but life changing breath work. Learn more about this and MBSR here. We are hearing more and more on a daily basis about the impact and positive effects of such practices. Many of us say we just don’t have time. I’d really like to help people develop a practice that works for them. Additionally, I have on-going 8-week MBSR classes.
Additionally, I offer a wonderful program called Prepare for Surgery, Heal faster, which works beautifully for exactly what the title says and also for chronic pain and people undergoing chemotherapy or radiation. See more under Care Offerings.
I am also a Reiki Master. Learn more about Reiki Healing and its potential here and offer Energy Healing that combines modalities of Reiki, Pranic Healing, Bengston method and my own intuitive sense. Energy healing provides a beautiful combination of the Mystic and Medical and a blending of compassion and an emphasis on truly holistic balance that I provide to those in my care.
I am so thankful for my wonderful and busy family, including my four children (my greatest teachers), my fabulous adopt-a-pet dogs, and our many friends and our wonderful community.
